No, I'm saying that Ricoh Imaging definitely altered and/or asked Tamron to alter the 70-210, and maybe - as suggested by the specs - that includes glass types for certain elements.
I'm not claiming the PLM lens is very fast focusing; it simply is. It feels instant.
Your theory is absurd. The focus limiter was added to improve the lens, and for no other reason.
Everyone has coating-related patents, and everyone claims theirs are original - and they are, in some small - or not so small - way. Is Pentax the only brand which isn't allowed to?
A lens quality evaluation isn't limited to the corner CA. What you're doing is cherry picking.
No, the Tamron does not render nicer.
And the Pentax is the superior lens, no matter what anti-Pentax trolls say.
Yes, the Tamron renders nicer. Evidence is clear on that (images). The CA is better, and the lens is actually close to 200mm. So, what besides all that, makes the Pentax have better image quality?
